    JFK planes during Desert Storm

    I did my VF-32 plane with a combination of existing decals and stuff printed from LaserJet at home. 201 would be the easiest to do in low-vis, being it only had basic markings ..

    JFK planes during Desert Storm

    I approve of this project :) … mainly because I've been slowly working on Kennedy aircraft from Desert Storm. At the moment, I'm on a Star Wars kick though so Desert Storm is on pause. A good number of my builds and short write ups are included in Jakub's Desert Storm reference site. They're a little dated as there are better aftermarket sets out now and I'm sure I can do a better assembly / paint job now too. But they might be a little helpful as I spent a good amount of time researching. I'm building at least one plane from each squadron. I've done 3 A-7Es, 2 F-14s, E-2C, KA-6D, S-3. Been meaning to get the Hobbyboss A-6E for a while … maybe after I'm done the new Bandai B-Wing :)

    awesome work from you as usual :)
  4. The A-Wings are different, I believe Revell has a kit out for the Last Jedi version

    The Last Jedi (Spoilers)

    All I have to say is: I won't be building any models from The Last Jedi
  6. i have left overs of this sheet if you want it, I used some of the F-111 decals

    1/48 F-111 opinions please?

    I'm one of those "good enough" modelers, and I'm fairly happy with how my Academy F-111F turned out. This was the Academy F-111C kit with modifications. There where things I didn't like that I would do different if I were to build this again; but good enough for now :) http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb32/toclafane/IMG_4918_zpse4tzovxp.jpg

    Decals for Tornado F3 in ODS

    I have left overs of the 1:48 Model Alliance sheet. I didn't use the decals on that sheet for my own Granby build. Unless I am mistaken, it was only during the build up phase that planes had that emblem. You can tell the time period because of the smaller fuel tanks which weren't used during war time.

    Bandai 1:72 Millenium Falcon

    Though, i'm not a big fan of the Millenium Falcon, this model has potential to look amazing. I built the 1:144 kit and it looked alright. However, there are still other craft that I would prefer over the Falcon. A 1:72 kit of the Imperial Shuttle, B-Wing, Tie Bomber ... and I'm all happy :)
  11. have you guys seen this? sweet .. http://www.taghobby.com/archives/196470
  12. Built this for someone else, so I did this one kinda quickly. I've decided 1:144 is too small of a scale for me. All the weathering was done with paint brush.

    Kuat Systems A-Wing

    nicely done! :) I'm awaiting my order to come in.. I made a purchase on Nov 25th but it never showed, trying to get a refund. :( Put in another order with another retailer a couple weeks ago.. maybe this time.

    VMA-AW-533 A-6E loadout in Desert Storm

    it was No. 3 in a group of 4 Intruders from the Saratoga, dropping cluster bombs I believe over an airfield. It was a low-level night attack, no.2 (with Lts. Zaun and Wetzel) was shot down. no 3 diverted to Saudi Arabia. After this mission, the Navy generally quit low-level attacks..
